QUEER COMRADES

they say they aren’t wrong
you are the wrong one

they say you as they imagine you aren’t wrong
wrong are you as you are

they say there’s nothing wrong with their direction
only those are wrong who help you
to find your own

whatever they love becomes holy writ whatever they envy you is of the devil

you want to say
they aren’t wrong
you aren’t either
you don’t get it out of your lips

you want to say
love isn’t wrong
neither is not to love
they say you are wrong

you are wrong
wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong

wrong are the rainforest, the clouded leopard, Sumatra rhinos
any peacefully living soon extinct being
wrong is a tired reindeer that flees
and doesn’t pull Santa’s sleigh anymore
wrong is White Snake who loves a human
and gets called all sorts of names
wrong is the world as it really is

you want to ask
does civilization mean
the world cannot be as it is
or could it mean to understand it?

you want to ask
can red beans only join green beans
or do you need love for two beans to be one?
you want to ask
is faith a filter
a pinhole
or is it a rainbow?
you want to ask
you would like to ask

but even before you open your mouth they say you’re wrong
then let’s be wrong
because the earth has always been slanted
otherwise we could have no seasons
so let us peacefully live full of hope
on an earth that is wrong

let those people who’ re right
live on in their imagined hell
they call heaven

【慢慢讀,詩】鴻鴻/同志

他們說他們沒有錯
錯的是你

他們說他們想像的你沒有錯
錯的是你真正的樣子

他們說他們的方向沒有錯
錯的是幫你找到自己方向的人

所有他們喜愛的,都鑄成信仰
所有他們嫉妒的,都叫做誘惑

你想說
他們沒有錯
你也沒有錯
你說不出口

你想說
愛沒有錯
不愛也沒有錯
他們說錯

他們說錯
錯錯錯錯錯錯錯

錯的是雨林、雲豹、蘇門答臘犀牛
所有自在生長、卻瀕臨絕種的生物
錯的是從聖誕老人雪橇上
不堪負荷而逃走的麋鹿
錯的是愛上一個人
卻被指為變態、噁心、邪魔附體的白娘娘
錯的是世界本來的模樣

你想問
文明是改變本來的世界
還是理解本來的世界

你想問
紅豆綠豆才能配成一對
還是有愛才能配成一對
你想問
信仰是一面濾鏡
一眼針孔
還是一道彩虹
你想問
你還想問

但你在開口之前

他們已經說你錯
那就錯吧
畢竟地球原本就是傾斜的
否則也不會出現四季
讓我們平靜地、樂觀地活在一個錯的地球上

讓那些對的人
活在自己想像的地獄
他們稱之為天堂
